|Smocking the bodice|
|Just a simple pattern in a single color, good enough for a beginner?|
|Really nice cotton fabric, got it from Kamdar at 50% off|
If you're interested to try your hand at smocking, too. As a beginner, you might want to pick a plain fabric as it is easier to see if you made any mistakes. It's okay to choose fabric like the one I used above, but you might get a little eye strain, but I still enjoyed the process thoroughly, though. At first its a little difficult, but once you get the hang of it, it will became more easier and faster. I finished smocking the bodice in less than a weeks time, now all was left is sewing the back and front together and also fitting in the straps. Hope I can finish it soon, I'm really looking forward to wear it at last.
